This took place a few days before the invasion of Iraq, the imminence of which was very much on our minds. Banana Tom's drumming is somewhat overpowering, but he was very much in the spirit of the moment. Some punchy concertina playing from Stef largely redeems these spontaneous recordings. David (formerly of the Vienna Boys Choir!) at one point sings the ancient fertility song "Pat-a-Pan". This has been appropriated as a Christmas carol, even sung by Bing Crosby!
Abbey ruins in Avalonian mist, geometric plan of the Lady Chapel
The geometry of the Abbey, particularly the Lady Chapel is fascinating, and has been explored by writers such as John Michell. This chapel is the supposed site of the first Christian Church built in the British Isles, built, according to legend, by Joseph of Arimathea. Here is an introductory website.
Some more recordings from the Lady Chapel can be found here.
